    I got beat by wiring. Converted to electronic ignition and the car cranked like a champ, but no spark. Looked at the diagram again and my wire (blue/yellow tracer) ended at the ballast resistor (factory 2 post). Tried a jumper to the relay block and now the car doesn't even turn over. Tried the old jump the two connections on the relay and it cranks til the cows come home. Puzzled, frustrated, curious, bummed, all kinds of emotions after being up 30 hours, and after 26 days of thrashing. I'm not done, I have tomorrow morning, if I wake up early, 5am. I feel like Rocky, after the ninth round. I'm beaten and battered, but still feel like I can lick this. I'll look at a few more diagrams and see if I missed something is the most simple directions, and if I can't figure out what's going on, indonhabe an MSD 6AL ready to go in. So not sure if two Polaras will be there, but one sure will be, it doesn't mind the rain, much!

      Well I didn't make it today. My car runs great at idle and while accelerating (even just barely accelerating or WOT) but trying to drive a constant speed or hold a certain rpm with the clutch in and it sounds like its missing and it stutters. I tried jetting it up, checked every plug and plug wire with an ohm meter and adjusted my floats, jets, and checked for vacuum leaks. Only thing I didn't do was check timing so I'll try that tomorrow morning. If that doesn't work I won't be bringing the Dart :/

          The Polara is sitting on the entrance ramp of the highway. I was just about to head out when the car died. Would fire than not run. Backfired once and then I broke a connector at the ballast resistor. Got some tools,a ballast and will attempt to get it going.

                Always love kicking back and having a few while catching up with what everyone's done in the past year.

                            I should have taken a picture of you two. I think I snapped that pic of you before I met your wife.
